Le Marais Private Walking Tour
Over the years it has had...
Over the years it has had its share of ups and downs, falling from a chic residential area that was home to aristocrats and even a royal court, to a best-avoided shady slum. During the tour your guide will show you the many mutually opposed faces of this unique part of the city, and explain how vital it was, and still is, for the development of Paris.
The Marais is now going through a second renaissance, geared towards becoming a hipster mecca of Paris, a place where chic gourmet restaurants find themselves next to trashy second hand stores. Your guide will delight in making you discover all of these aspects of Marais.

Boris did a wonderful job showing us the beautiful Marais area. We toured old and new areas, learning about the history of the architecture, who worked and lived in the area hundreds of years ago as well as the gentrification of the area. My daughters and I enjoyed every minute of the tour and the interesting conversation with Boris who was very comfortable to chat with. Boris is very well educated on Paris, art and architecture - a perfect guide for this trip! We'll definitely recommend him to friends looking for any tours in Paris.
Our guide to a walking tour of the Marais was everything one could ask: a serious and impassioned student of the subject, the ability to communicate her knowledge in an engaging manner, inquisitiveness outside of her comfort zone, and a personable, flexible and gracious manner. No once over lightly here: bring your own A game. You cannot go wrong with Isadora in the Marais.
Our 2-hour walking tour with Boris was outstanding. He was incredibly knowledgeable and accomodated our requests to see certain points of interests. We would recommend this tour without reservation.
Stephanie was a fabulous tour guide. We had the best time where she would tell us the stories behind the sites we were seeing. She also was able to relate things to her own life. We thoroughly enjoyed her and wished that she would have been our tour guide for the entire time we were in Paris.
